fountain.jpgThe Morse School is the only Cambridge public school to follow The Core Knowledge Sequence which is predicated on the realization that what children are able to learn at any given moment depends on what they already know–and, equally important, that what they know is a function of previous experience and teaching. The Core Knowledge Scope and Sequence is aligned with the national common core standards and provides a detailed outline of curricular content to be taught in the major subject areas. This guarantees that all Morse children will be provided with a rich, varied, challenging, and cohesive course of studies from preschool through the 5th grade.

gen_info_girls.pngOur staff uses a variety of teaching methods and resources to give the students a solid foundation of knowledge and a place where they can develop respect for self and others, a sense of civic responsibility, and an appreciation of people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs. The Core Knowledge sequence is infused with district & state requirements.

The Morse School building was renovated and enlarged in 1998. Its unique layout - a one level building that stretches along the Charles River at the base of the Cambridgeport neighborhood - is popular with parents and visitors. It has several playgrounds and is adjacent to a city ballfield.
